    I have been trying to find a SCOBY for a few months now.  I don’t want to pay a whole bunch because I don’t know if we willlike the stuff or if I will succeed in brewing it.  Want to try it for the benefits, though.

  26. Adrienne Whole New Mom says:

    Why does non organic tea have fluoride in it?

    1. hallecottis says:

      Adrienne Whole New Mom Good question.  The concern comes up that ALL tea has fluoride in it and it is unclear where the source of fluoride comes from.  Organic tea is thought to have less fluoride, but this has only been discovered from a small team that did a study for the WAPF.  (
      Some believe fluoride in tea could come from:pollution, certain fertilizers and pesticides  others believe that it comes right from the tea plant itselfor is the water source where the fluoride comes from?  
      This is known though…that older, lower quality tea contains more fluoride then younger tea leaves.

  27. anj says:

    Why no coloured glass for Kombucha?

  28. Heidi says:

    Do you worry at all about caffeine or alcohol in kombucha?

  29. chaya bell-gumaer says:

    So if you use loose leaf tea how much should you use? 4 bags=about 2 Tablespoons?
    You can grow you own Scoby by buying an unflavored Kombucha and letting it ferment with some sugary tea. I have tried it, and it works. Once you have one scoby they continue to multiple, and you will have more than you know what to do with, so you can share them with others!

  30. Becky says:

    You really should explain why not to use colored glass. With brews it is usually suggested that you store them in colored glass so that it remains unchanged by UV.

    Also, this is an important read for anyone brewing Kombucha:

  31. Jen Spicuzza says:

    Why do you NOT use colored glass? I was told to buy colored glass for the flavored kambucha because it needs to be out of the light… for my actual 10 day batch I am using a clear glass…

  32. Brenda says:

    I have recently started drinking Kombuchi that I purchase at a health food store. Would like to start brewing my own. Thanks for the tutorial and post.

  33. Just bought a bottle to drink from the health co op store. Lke it…

  34. Just bought some from a health store to drink, taste good..
